August 2011 Top dam -- taking the papyrus out and draining the lane


 Top Dam  
 The island of papyrus was blocking the outlet at the spillway

John Barrow of Barrow Constructions  generously loaned us a TLB for the day.

Moses, the driver, dragged the island slowly to the edge

 A huge heap of papyrus being pushed up the bank

The last little bit!!

The spillway is clear again

The papyrus on the bank where it will dry

Our lovely dam!!

    Well done and thank you for looking after our beautiful gem in the city! Mary
